Dicon

Δίκων), the son of Callimbrotus, was victor in the foot-race five times in the Pythian games, thrice in the Isthmian, four times in the Nemean. and at Olympia once in the boys' footrace, and twice in the men's : he was therefore a περιοδονίκης. His statues at Olympia were equal in number to his victories. He was a native of Caulonia, an Achaean colony in Italy; but after all his victories, except the first, he caused himself, for a sum of money, to be proclaimed as a Syracusan. One of his Olympic victories was in the 99th Olympiad, B. C. 384. (Paus. 6.3.5; Anth. Graec. iv. p. 142, No. 120, ed. Jacobs, Anth. Pal. 13.15; Krause, Olymp. p. 271, Gymn. u. Agon. ii. p. 755.)
